Police History Photo
This month's Police History photo comes from the Dayton Ohio Police Department. Dayton has been credited with issuing the world's 1st speeding ticket in 1904. Harry Myers was traveling 12 miles per hour on West Third Street when he was ticketed. It happened four years before Harry (real name Henry C. Myers) became a hollywood actor. His career would include appearing in 257 silent and "talking" films as well as directing 48 films. Myers most famous role was with Charlie Chaplin in City Lights.
“A boss creates fear, a leader confidence. A boss fixes blame, a leader corrects mistakes. A boss knows all, a leader asks questions. A boss makes work drudgery, a leader makes it interesting. A boss is interested in himself or herself, a leader is interested in the group.”
— Russell H. Ewing
Leadership is about passion, not power. It is about elevating and crediting others, not seeking credit for your self. It is about learning from those around you, not lecturing them. Never in history did a great leader ever say, “I did it myself.”
